Originally released in the late '80s with the code G1244, this vintage travel bag in GG Plus fabric has been hand-picked by Gucci's archivists. The bag is framed by brown leather and has the green and red Web down the center. On the inside on the rear dial is Gucci Crest with Made in Italy is punched into a golden metal plate applied to a brown leather tag with the number 012.525.1742 in gold. This travel bag was selected by the Creative Director and Vault archivists for its particularity, character and exceptional vintage condition, and it was reconditioned to the highest standard by in-house artisans. It has been given the number 43 | 21 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.
Born as an addition to the Original GG, the GG Plus canvas is a durable and resistant fabric first created in the mid-1970s, now evolved in what is known as GG Supreme—a contemporary version used by Alessandro Michele starting from the Fall Winter 2015 collection.
The fabric extends around the vertical shape and is framed by deep brown leather detailing and is intercepted by the green and red Web. The Web stripe signifies an unspoken code that is recognizable at first glance. The stripe extends through decades, connecting each wearer not only to the origin of the House but to each owner of the bag, who was also undeniably drawn to the regimental stripes of green and red.
As soon as you hold a piece of the Vault, you begin to write a new chapter of its story—instituting a relationship, rather than ownership, that will forever connect one owner to the next. As the years accumulate, every mark or crease is collected onto the surface, continuously altering the item’s appearance and making it completely unique. Imperfections should be expected and treasured as the journey continues for this piece.
